Those three alternate endings were still very confusing.
But it was still humorous nonetheless.
An amusing take on “And Then There Were None” and “Murder by Death”
RELEASED IN 1985 and directed by Jonathan Lynn, “Clue” is a comedic murder mystery based on the board game featuring an “all-star” cast (Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Eileen Brennan, Lesley Ann Warren, etc.).
This is a good movie if you’re in the mood for an amusing mystery that takes place during the McCarthy era (1954) almost entirely within a vast gothic mansion on a stormy night. It combines movies like “Ten Little Indians” (1965) and “The Beast Must Die” (1974) with the goofiness of “The Private Eyes” (1980).
I was skeptical at how Lynn & the cast could pull off the challenge of making such a confined story entertaining, but I have to admit that I busted out laughing several times (e.g. the scenes of making out with corpses). And the cast is a pleasure to behold with Colleen Camp a highlight as the stereotypical (hot) French maid. The climax with its several murder scenarios is kinda tedious, however.
THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour 34 minutes and was shot in Paramount Studios, Hollywood, and Max Busch House, Pasadena, California. WRITERS: Jonathan Lynn and John Landis.
Fantastic performances salvage a standard whodunnit
I’ve been annoyed at most of the bad reviews I read of this movie, because none of them understand what it’s all about. It’s true; the script is not actually that great. What makes it great is how everything is delivered. The cast is fantastic in playing each part as a cliché, even when the lines are far from it. Curry plays the role with so much ham that it’s understood why the script is like this. This is a play, not a movie. I can understand not being in the mood for this film. But I can’t understand not appreciating these fantastic performances. Another person pointed out that this film needs to be seen in widescreen. This is correct-the movie reaches another level of greatness by seeing it in proper aspect-ratio. And I’ve never seen Colleen Camp looking this fantastic.
“Red Herrings” and lots of laughs!
Have you ever played a murder mystery game called “Clue”? There is one hilariously funny film adaptation from the year 1985.
A group of people are invited to a dark mansion by the mysterious Mr.Boddy. A butler Wadsworth (always brilliant Tim Curry) is there to welcome everybody. Everything is so odd and all of the guests are called nicknames like Colonel Mustard, Ms.Scarlet, Mrs. Peacock, etc. They don’t know each other but everybody is eager to know why just them are there in the middle of nowhere locked in the frightening house? After a while happens a first murder… The guests soon realize that they are plotted to a cruel mind-game and there is no way out to this dark and mysterious mansion…
“Clue” includes very clever humor. There is a lot of witty word-games and puns so that the dialog is extremely memorable. There is also classic slapstick-humor also. The mood in the film is thrilling. You can easily enjoy comedic murder-solving and the movie can be watched many times. If you like the game “Clue” you have to see “Clue: the movie” The cast consist of some funny comedians like Michael Mckean, Christopher Lloyd, the late Madeline Kahn, etc. Tim Curry is energetic as Wadsworth.
In the end the movie thrills with alternative ending- sequence “This is how it could have happened” or “This is what really happened”. As a child I loved the ending. The film manages to entertain me as an adult too.
Are you brave enough to play along? High recommends! “Frankly Scarlett I don’t give a damn” -Wadsworth to Ms. Scarlet
